“We’re offering 50 per cent off adoption fees for all adult cats, which is a great incentive for people who have been thinking about adopting and it allows us to find homes more quickly for the incredible cats in our care,” says Lorie Chortyk, BC SPCA general manager of communications.
“This spring we have taken an overwhelming number of cats into care through hoarding cases and other rescue situations, so our shelters are very full.”
Last year, the BC SPCA found new loving homes for nearly 10,000 cats and kittens throughout the province.
The advantages of adopting an adult cat, says Chortyk, include the fact that older cats tend to be calmer, are litter box trained, and have fully developed personalities, making it easier to find the perfect match for you.
